A Freaky Fabulous Birthday..

So Miss Blue's birthday is sneaking up on me.
It's ten days away.
She has got a lot of Monster High awesomeness
coming her way.
I'm so excited.
She is going to be glowing when she see's it all.
But oh no I haven't even thought of the cake.
I usually go all out on the cake!
I'm going to post
Monster High Cakes and Cupcakes
here for references and inspiration.

I love these all.
Don't know if mine is going to 
come out as good.
But I am defiantly going to try real hard!
It is only going to be a few of us so
 I don't need to go all out.
But it will be great practice for the future  birthday party's
Going shopping for a bunch of this stuff today!

I'm so excited and a little sad 
my little girl is going to be 7.
I want this birthday to be fangtastic for her!
I'll be making a lot of Monster High post soon.
She is getting a TON of Monster High goodies!

Stay Ghoulishious
Till Next Time xoxo

Hansel and Gretel are mine all mine!!!

When I first saw this set.
It went directly on the MUST HAVE list..
I have a few other from the Scarey Tales series.
So I was dropping major hits weeks before
mothers day to the hubby and kiddies.
This would make the perfect 
mothers day present for me.
Well mothers day came and I was bummed
Mommy got no dolls.
But I understood why.
Money is tight buying a new car and all.
And our doll buying was one of the things
that was going to be cut.
Me and Blue went out for a bit 
and when I came home my hubby went babe
I got awesome news.
I got some birthday money coming 
and I want you to get your set of dolls.
I was excited and surprised 
how awesome my hubby was being.
He was going to spend half his
 bday money on me! 
I'm such a lucky girl!!!
(Thank you Nana & Papa)
So then the search began.
They were pretty expensive all over.
I was getting bummed.
Then I stumbled upon
They had them and their price was awesome.
I got excited and ordered that second.
Yep I was dancing around the room after 
that payment went through.
I started counting down the days.
So a few days later I get a email my
payment has been refunded.
Turn that smile into bummed and upset.
I wrote the company and asked them why.
She said that they sold out before I placed my order.
And then told me she was expecting a order in soon
and she would let me know when they got them in.
Well the new order list came in and 
no Hansel and Gretel.
O Boo.
But this is where the really amazing 
part comes in.
Jenna from Sinister Collections went to
and picked me up the set.
Emailed me and let me know if I wanted it,
she would ship it to me the next day!
I was beyond excited not only
that I was going to get the set.
But it was coming from Bats day..
A event I have wanted to attend for a long time.

I highly recommend Sinister Collections.
Their customer service is out of this world!
And they are getting a huge shipment of dolls in soon. 
Not only do they have dolls they have
 a lot of really cool horror products.

Here are a few of my favorite items.
But you need to check it out for yourself.
They have a little bit of everything!

Beetlejuice 18-Inch Action Figure with Sound

Walking Dead Bicycle Girl Zombie Mini-Bust

Tim Burton Tragic Toys Pin Cushion Queen Vinyl Figure

Oh yeah and they carry Abbey Dawn clothes and shoes!
Star Wars
Nightmare Before Christmas
Sucker Punch
Resident Evil
and  a lot more!

Register for their email and receive 10% off.
So enough about this awesome company!
I know your dying to hear about the dolls.

So I haven't opened the dolls.
(Hubby won't let me)
But to be honest the paint job kinda erks me.
Up close it is a mess.
Usually the dolls faces 
are painted differently.
Those little scattered lines reminds
me of when my little girl took 
a pen to her dolls face.
It kinda kills it for me.

Far away it looks ok.
Hansel's hair looks hard as a rock.
I personally can't stand when a doll's hair is hard.
You can see how the quality of the dolls 
is going down hill a bit.
The outfits are super simple.
I wish they would stop making so many dolls.
And put out a couple really good quality ones.
But no matter the things I don't like.
I still love them!
And super stoked to have them 
as part of our collection.

Thank you Jenna so much
You have made this doll super happy!

And my hubby for loving me so much!!!

If you are into horror go and like their Facebook

With the bogo and coupon got them for 1.44

Do you ooVoo?

So the one thing that really bums me out about
living where I do is that all 
my friends are super far away.
I have some amazing friends
and miss them all dearly.
Well this is where oovoo comes in.
I personally can't stand Skype.
It never works out for me I get all excited 
I am going to chat with one of my girlies.
But it usually turns into
 I can't see you can you see me.
By the end of it I am ready to
 throw my laptop out the window.
I needed to find a program that actually 
let me see my friends and them see me.

I found oovoo through a google search
downloaded it and tryed it out.
And well I love it!
Have been using it for a few years
now and will continue to.
You get two windows.
Has a button that lets you take pics.
If you want to have someone
join your chat room all you have to do
is send them the link.
There is text chat.
It lets you talk to multiple people at the same time.
(up to 12)
You can make phone calls with the program.
You are able to send files.
It available for PC, Mac,Android,iPhone.
And the best part you get to see and
hear your family and friends.
Our pee wee's can interact too
even though we are thousand
of miles away.


Having the ability to see my friends
makes them being so far not as hard.
I get to tell stories and joke around.
And see smiling faces back.

I have a bunch more ooVoo pic
but they are on my other computer.
(dead laptop)
I chat with my dad regularly
which is awesome cause the kids
get to see their grandpa.
And they both love it!
 Telling him knock knock jokes.
Miss blue showing off her new dance moves.
It is interaction that is priceless.
And so much better then just a phone call!

If you have someone you are missing.
Our just want to see their smile.
You really need to check out!

Ruby Gloom

You all know I love Emily The Strange & Lenore.
But one lady I really adore is Ruby Gloom.
We just got Netflix and the thing
 I am most excited about is
they have 3 seasons of Ruby Gloom.
Me and the kids have been watching 
episode after episode loving them.
They have the episode and
 then a cute little skit at the end.
And I have come to the conclusion if I were 
a character in a cartoon this would
be the one.

Meet Ruby

Ruby has earned her title of "The Happiest Girl in the World". Ruby is a girl who can find happiness in anything. "Look on the bright side" is a phrase she chants like a mantra, and it serves her well. There isn't a single thing in the world that gets her down or a single negative that she can't turn into a positive. Her positive attitude has been shown to be helpful, as it allows Ruby to act as the voice of reason in the mansion, while her friends tend to lose focus on real issues. Ruby also has a crush on Skull Boy, who is one of her friends. 

 and her friends 
Skull Boy

A man of many talents, 
Skull Boy is the mansion's official Jack of All Trades.
 From film directing to private investigating, 
Skull Boy can pretty much do it all.
 His only problem is that he can't seem to find one
 thing and stick to it for any serious length of time.
 But if Skull Boy doesn't know where he's going,
 it's mostly because he doesn't know where he's been.
There have been several moments that 
confirm that Ruby has a crush on him. 
Even though Skull Boy doesn't know 
where he is from, he has a family
 - his friends are his family.

 Scaredy Bat

Scaredy Bat is a bat with an Indian accent who is afraid of almost everything.
 Where Ruby finds happiness and Iris finds adventure, 
Scaredy Bat finds only fear. Despite being a bat, he's afraid of flying and is also afraid of the dark.
 He's also afraid of his own reflection.  
Scaredy Bat is the loyal and talented drummer of
 Frank and Len's band, R.I.P. When he is behind the kit,
 Scaredy Bat is a beat machine and forgets his fear. 


 Poe live in an attached addition to the mansion.
Poe a man of culture and sophistication, likes to think of himself as a role model to the rest of the mansion's residents. Unfortunately, he tends to be a little too attached to his image and likes to cover up the parts of him that make him look like less than what he makes himself out to be.

 Mr. Buns
Mr. Buns is a stuffed rabbit that Ruby created from one of her leftover socks. 
The floppy, yet enigmatic Mr. Buns loves tea cozies and pretty 
much finds himself in the middle of almost all the action in the mansion. 
He also has a strange tendency to show up anywhere.


Misery doesn't mean to be a walking disaster area. 
Her mishaps are usually a combination 
of clumsiness and extraordinary bad luck.
She does have tiny moments of happiness throughout the series, 
but unless they're few and far between, her bad luck rears its ugly
 head and strikes her down with a vengeance, usually in the form of lightning bolts.

Frank & Len
Rockers by nature, these two teenage patchwork
 brothers live in the mansion's garage. 
They have their own garage band, known as R.I.P (pronounced "RIP"). 
Frank and Len's strength lies in performing music. 
Unfortunately, this seems to be all that is their strength, 
since they both tend to lose focus on anything that isn't their music. 
They can hardly focus on something if it doesn't have a beat.


 Iris goes through life without a care in the world.
Always seeking the next fun adventure.
 Iris's adventuresome nature also makes her quite impulsive
and she has a bad habit of jumping into a situation
 without considering potential consequences.
 This usually results in trouble she doesn't expect.
 However, as soon as the trouble is gone, she's off again on another adventure.

Doom Kitty 
As Ruby's pet cat, 
Doom Kitty has a complete free run of the mansion and
 is therefore usually the only one with total knowledge 
of what is going on in any given area of the house. 
This keeps her one step ahead of Ruby and the others most of the time, 
because whenever something strange happens in the mansion, 
Doom Kitty will usually have all the facts already while 
everyone else is still trying to figure things out. 
Unfortunately, since Doom Kitty can't talk, her only hope of communicating
 with the others is through mime with violin noises.

 Boo Boo

The mansion's ghost
Boo Boo sees it as his job to haunt. 
However, it's a little difficult for him to do that when everyone thinks he's cute 
Boo Boo enjoys pranking more than he enjoys scaring
The mansion in Gloomsville

In a Victorian mansion on the
 outskirts of Gloomsville
lives Ruby Gloom. 
Some kids might be afraid of the dark,
 the eccentric neighbors and the 
unknow things that dwell in the closet.
But Ruby is different- 
She befriends these strange and sometimes
scary creatures.
She finds them delightful.
Paying no attention to their
 appearances perceptive
only to their hearts and souls.
Ruby likes to point out
"Always look on the bright side-
 Unless of course the dark side
is your bright side and that is okay too!"

This is my favorite show.
Here watch the opening and you'll see why.

:Theme Song:
So today we're gonna
Take the time to show ya
The b-b-bright side of the dark side

And we think you outta
Know you really gotta
See the b-b-bright side of the dark side

Ruby Gloom

We're gonna show you why
There's more than meets the eye
The b-b-bright side of the dark side

And we think you outta
Know you really gotta
See the b-b-bright side of the dark side

Ruby Gloom
Ruby Gloom

Ruby Gloom is an animated series that was  on Canadian channel YTV based on a book series by the same name.
Now on Netflix!!! YAY!!!

Ruby Gloom is certainly adorable and love by all.
There is all sorts of Ruby Gloom merch.
But it is hard to find.
I luck out every once in awhile when thrifting.
And my rule if I see anything Ruby Gloom I buy it.

This show is defiantly a good one to watch,
if you look on the bright side of the dark side...
